This Norwegian Wood Cocktail is fruity and delicious! Post may contain affiliate links.
One of my favorite times of the year is when the stores are overflowing with berries. All the summer berries you could want. As the strawberries start to fade out, they are replaced with blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. I’m using them in everything from smoothies to salads and especially cocktails! Fruit and alcohol are a match made in heaven. Think of Homemade Orange Liqueur and Dark Cherry Liqueur. Whenever I see fruit, I invariably want to preserve it in some form of alcohol. But if you want your fruity alcohol goodness right now, then this Norwegian Wood Cocktail is perfect!
I found this cocktail in the charming Sweet Paul Eat and Make: Charming Recipes and Kitchen Crafts You Will Love by Paul Lowe. I love Sweet Paul – I get the magazine as a PDF download for my iPad and it’s tied with Donna Hay as my favorite foodie magazine. He’s also incredibly crafty and I love his photography skills! He also makes a mighty fine cocktail. This recipe couldn’t be simpler. You basically muddle some berries with some rosemary, add a little simple syrup (I used my Thyme Simple Syrup), some vodka and top with ginger ale. Easy peasy and oh-so-delicious!
- 4 oz simple syrup
- 6 raspberries
- 10 blueberries
- 4 blackberries
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1/2 cup vodka
- Ginger Ale
- Divide the berries and the rosemary between two old-fashioned glasses and muddle.
- Add ice to the glasses and then divide the lime juice, simple syrup and vodka in half between the glasses. Stir. Top with the ginger ale.
